Hello students & parents! My name is Kris, and I have been tutoring and teaching for twenty years with awesome results and a 100% student return rate. I believe that learning should always be engaging and fun, and math should always make sense! Algebra, geometry, trig, and SAT are my specialties, and I guarantee I can help you bring up your grades. If your test scores don’t go up, I’ll teach it again for free.
So here's my story - I was a math whiz in school (800 Math SAT), studied engineering at UCSD (BSME with honors), worked on rockets for a while (Delta IV launch vehicles), then became a youth pastor because teaching teens is awesome! More recently I created an educational mobile app for daily Bible study (check out Through the Word in the app store). All along I keep tutoring, because I love to help students succeed.
Are you feeling lost in math class - trying to memorize endless rules without understanding why? I can help. I break it down so that you get it. I use object lessons and clear explanation to help you get past your stumbling blocks and get the confidence that comes from real understanding. Already rockin' the math? I'll help you drive ahead to score that scholarship! I got one and I can help you do the same.
I genuinely care for students, I communicate with parents and teachers as needed, and I don't charge extra for homework phone calls. I'm always patient, always encouraging and relatable, and occasionally funny (laughter is a great memory trigger, and studies show that teaching with humor results in higher test scores! Check out my SAT teaching notes for a tip on how to use it to your advantage).
I am new to WyzAnt, so here are a couple reviews from my previous students:
"I had difficulties understanding Algebra and had no hope of passing the class. With Kris tutoring me I was able to grasp the information and pass the class with flying colors. He is patient with his students and very knowledgeable in the subject. He has a way of making you understand the problems and get good grades in the class. He is in fact the best tutor I have ever had!" - Ashlie W., Huntington Beach
"As a former student of Kris in an educational setting as a tutee as well as a church setting as a student, I feel that I can attest to his exceptional teaching abilities. Kris tutored me when I was struggling with algebra, he was able to explain algebra in a way that was clear and easy for me to understand from then on out. Kris really breaks things down to a student's level that he or she can easily understand. Kris is a very patient person who genuinely cares for students." - Chris D., Huntington Beach
